Henry Gooding has been missing for a year, and strange things have been going on while he's been away. Kevin P. Joyce's absurd, ambitious, and outrageous farce, set at the "haunted" Sea Hawk Inn on Nantucket Island, blends Roman, renaissance, and musical comedy to explore grief, coping mechanisms, escapism, and hope.
